"The Kraken. Come for the fish, stay for a whale of a tale. Just five hours outside Santa Fe in the middle of the New Mexico desert."
This 8x10" print series is titled "Portraits of America's Food Stands" and will feature the best food at the greatest restaurants you've never heard about.

Very nice. Concept for your project sounds very cool also.
Will you sell the series as a collection or pieces one-by-one?
@Emir Ayouni Thanks. They'll be sold individually. I'm sure everyone will have their own favorites. A set is a good idea, so I might consider it :) We'll see if I haven't lost my mind when I'm done with all 10.
Very cool. Lovely color treatment too.
This is funkin' amazing :)
Great work - and super awesome to study the process!
What is your thoughts about making the characters with a solid stroke and leave the scenery without any stroke? Before i realised you made the illustration for print, i assumed that it was part of an animation because of the style difference. Is it to highlight the characters, because they're more important?
Thanks for sharing, mate.
PS. The awesome naive squid boy is simply killing me. Had a good laugh, when i saw the full-size image :)
After your initial concepts/sketches do you draw the majority of your shapes (like architecture) in Illustrator and then add all texture, color changes and line work in PS?
SO FUGGIN GOOD!
Man, so good. Love the process shots, too. Nailed the color/composition.
I love this Chris! I love how the characters have the black outline while the background is more subtle. Reminds me of classic Nick toons. Great job!
wow - great work!
@Marc Aspinall @Csaba Gyulai Thanks!
@Bendsen I did it on purpose because I love that visual contrast on animated shows. It brings more attention to the characters and makes them feel like a "cell" overlay (though no one uses cells anymore haha). I figured, why not translate that love into print form :)
@Ian Glaubinger In this project, yes, that's how I'll be tackling them. I realized that I'm not a good enough draftsman to draw these buildings freehand. Doing the base shapes in AI allows me to get the geometry just the way I want it.
@Leopoldo Alves @Laura Bohill @Timothy J. Reynolds @Rob Zangrillo Much appreciated! Starting the second one this morning.
@Cole Roberts Exactly! *thumbs up*
@Christopher Lee Thanks for the insight. That's actually how i tackle a decent amount of my stuff too.
I love this so much
You know this is spectacular, right?
Loving the direction and play on character outline style.
I love this style!
Loving this sir. Instead of prints, would you ever do it as a book?
@Jake Fleming @Diana @James Boorman @Bryan Williams Thanks! The second one is almost done. Hope to post it tonight!
@Dylan Cook Ten prints is hardly enough to warrant printing an entire book haha. Although I would like to compile my work into a book...someday. Maybe in another five years :)
Well I meant more :D
Oh unless you can do a postcard book, but I have no idea of the print run costs of that.
I love this. Especially love the contrast between the fry cook and the rest of the image. So well done.
This is great! Thank you so much for posting your progress!!!
